Should I be worried that I want to see each of the ABC series mentioned in the previous threads
I especially want to see "Auction-aire", "Club Seven", "The Ruggles" (I once uploaded an episode, but didn't view the episode I uploaded....sorry. I'll get around to it when I add an MPEG2 file to the page for the episode), "Volume One", "Acrobat Ranch", "Chef Milani Cooks", "Crash Corrigan’s Ranch", "Mama Rosa", "The Marshal of Gunsight Pass", "Don Ameche’s Musical Playhouse", "Don McNeill’s T.V. Club", "Kreisler Bandstand", and "Studs’ Place".
There's episodes someone uploaded of "Space Patrol", which I'll probably watch sooner or later. I'm not a fan of 1950s sci-fi (I find it unintentionally hilarious that, in many of those series, the allegories for commies are done using emperors and kings. Irony at its worst), but hey, I am stuck at home all day with mental illness, so I might as well watch them.
I think "Faith for Today" might be on YouTube....I'll check into that. Even with a series like that, I feel the desire to see at least 1 or 2 episodes as examples.
Should I be worried at the degree of my obsession with classic TV? If nothing else, at least I'm not a murderous bloodthirsty ninja aged 13...but at least he learned to change his ways.

Re: Should I be worried that I want to see each of the ABC series mentioned in the previous threads
I was intending to post a reply with classic TV series with the word "afraid" in the title, but the oldest one I could find on IMDb was fairly recent:http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0103352/
Great series in any case.
As for the word "worry":http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0375498/
...and the word "worried":http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0125624/
and just for fun, "stupid", which is what describes my poor spelling ability:http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0105928/
"2 Stupid Dogs" is a guilty pleasure of mine. Haven't seen the other two series, but if they have TV in the afterlife, I'll probably watch them sooner or later.
Sometimes I am amazed at how many TV series have aired over the years.
For example, during 1959-1960, NBC aired the following in prime-time:
The Dinah Shore Chevy Show
The Loretta Young Show
The Huntley-Brinkley Report
Richard Diamond, Private Detective
Love and Marriage
Tales of Wells Fargo
Alcoa Theatre / Goodyear Television Playhouse
Fibber McGee and Molly
The Arthur Murray Party
The Price is Right
Perry Como's Kraft Music Hall
This Is Your Life
Law of the Plainsman
The Ford Show, Starring Tennessee Ernie Ford
You Bet Your Life
The Lawless Years
People Are Funny
The Bell Telephone Hour
Gillette Cavalcade of Sports
Phillies Jackpot Bowling
The Man and the Challenge
It Could Be You
You can thank/blame Wikipedia as being the source for the list I put together out of boredom.
You've probably seen more of the shows on this list than me. I've only seen 7 of them, in most cases just a single episode, and in the case of "It Could Be You" and "The Arthur Murray Party", it was from a run the series had on a different network.
